This was a real gem. The moment I walked in, the staff let me know that I was important and that they wanted my stay in Sydney to be enjoyable. The concierge took the time to quickly show me a map of local interests. Bathroom - clean and spacious, bedroom - clean and spacious, power points - many. It really annoys me when I have to hunt for a power point for the laptop/phone charger/ tablet... Tea/coffee available. Somewhere to put two suitcases. How many times do hotel rooms have a place for one suitcase but two people have two suitcases? I was staying in one of the less expensive rooms but would not know it. I had an American guest with me and she and I had a grand time in this hotel. We dined at the hotel and were very happy. Both of us have travelled extensively in Asia but the Sydney Intercontinental was a match for any of the best hotels in Tokyo, Bangkok or Singapore, etc. Well done management, well done staff. I am looking forward to the next time I stay there.

Wonderful. The most comfortable bed. Not quite so in love with the pillows but seriously above average. Breakfast was great. Room comfort including electric blind control was great. Power points were adequate. Needed more horizontal spaces for the suitcases. Loved the staff. Loved the staff. Loved the staff and the breakfast and the restaurants. I hope to return. No where else will be good enough.

Our 7 days stay

Location, location, location
The location of hotel is very good as it is near to Sydney harbour and Opera House Our stay at the hotel is good except we have 7 days of the same morning buffet breakfast A bit disappointed considering the hotel is rated five stars. They should have provided a slight different menus may be every two days and the room wifi service wasnt provided free to guests until we requested.

Perfect until we tried to leave

check in, food and the room
Eryk the staff member who checked us in couldn't have been nicer, the BEST greeting and service i have ever received. The room was great and the view was great, the view from the pool at night is amazing. The only issue was with the parking service, extremely rude on entry with no real process to the parking and when we tried to leave after checkout they took 40minutes to get our car, turns out they forgot to send down for it and that's even after one of the attendants asked what we were waiting for 15minutes in.
